It would be a shame not to take advantage of Derry’s status as the only remaining walled city in Ireland. So why not take a tour? Built during the seventeenth century, the walls originally served as defences from early settlers. Today, they remain an important part of the city’s history as well as providing a viewpoint from which to look out upon Derry in its current form. A date along the walls walkway would provide you with a historic and suitably romantic perspective on the city in which you live.
Similarly, a date at the Museum of Free Derry would also be a great way to get involved with the local history of the city. Not one with quite so much pride attached, this rather thought-provoking museum is an archive of the Civil Rights Movement – also referred to as the Troubles – which occurred throughout the 1950s and 60s. Told from the perspective of those who lived through this period, it gives a unique insight into what was a destructive conflict.
Londonderry is widely renowned for its live music scene – yet this doesn’t always have to mean a loud and lairy night time affair. For a date with a more intimate feel why not choose Sandino’s Cafe and Bar? This relaxed venue holds a number of music events – from DJ sessions on Saturdays to traditional Irish music on Sundays – this is the place to go to enjoy entertainment with a laid-back vibe.
In a city with a varied and contemporary culinary scene, it’s not difficult to find a decent meal. Highly rated restaurants include Custom House; where delicious meals are served up in a romantic and beautifully restored Victorian building; and Quaywest, an affordable yet equally delightful local eatery. Londonderry’s status as a ‘city of culture’ undoubtedly transfers to its cuisine – so take advantage and treat your date to something special!
